Shapeshifter Brand Beirson was raised to rule the Broods of Fenrir, but he refused his birthright. Instead, he killed their brutal leader - his own father - and walked away.
For hundreds of years he's avoided brood society, until a werewolf kills and innocent human woman and Brand finds himself dragged back into the violent politics of the shapeshifters. When the two brood women who mean the most to him come under threat, he must take up the throne and risk becoming the kind of vicious bastard his father was, or let the broods descend further into chaos - taking the friend he swore to protect and his lover with them.
Brand is an amazing character - he mixed just enough of the broody werewolf with the protecting and honorable hero to make him deep enough to really really like. The relationship he has with the other shapeshifters is quite an interesting one. As the one meant to rule them all, they should honor him, but since he threw it all away and lives without a pack of his own, they all look down on him at the same time. This causes him to become the target of a female wolf from his past who is just a bit psychotic and crazy.
When her plots place his best friend and new love of his life deep into danger, Brand grabs control of the broods to save their lives. Quite adventurous for a paranormal romance, it was very hard to put down and had me rooting for all the good guys in just the right places.
